Writing task – write a narrative (story) re-telling the story of ‘The Piano’ Watch the clip of ‘The Piano’ by Aidan Gibbons https://www.literacyshed.com/piano.html
Make sure you have the sound turned on! This is called a ‘flashback narrative’ as it is a story based on memories – you see the memories in the clip. It might make you feel a bit emotional (it’s supposed to!?!). You might want to watch it a couple of times to become familiar with it.
Have a go at re-telling the flashback story – starting in the present with the old man playing the piano, then each of the memories in the right order, finishing back in the present.
There are so many emotions that you can include here, as well as lots of description. We don’t know any of the characters names so either call them ‘the man’, ‘his friend’ or give them names.
Remember to use adverbials of time (first, next, then…) other linking & joining words and ing end ed starters (Opening the present, I… Rushing to help, I….). Can you include some show don’t tell for feelings and a couple of complex sentences (I have in my example- can you spot them?)
Mrs Mannion has emailed you the start of her narrative to read as an example, a sheet to use for planning, and the linking and joining words sheet we use in class.
From your practise and learn book complete Page 8 – Changing words types and Page 30 – Classic novel
Week 10 – angles (you will need a protractor for a few questions but don’t worry if you don’t have one at home – just skip these ones OR estimate!)
There are no alternative sheets this week as this is new learning.
Mrs Mannion has already emailed you the sheets and answers to use.
You have also been allocated some Purple Mash maths tasks to have a go at
World Book day 2020
We had a great day dressing up for world book day and sharing our favourite books.
The Battle of Hastings
Today we re-enacted the Battle of Hastings. We enjoyed learning all about the Battle and using our weapons to fight! William the Conqueror gave a fantastic speech to his troops and was victorious in battle!
This half term we have been learning to rap! We have really enjoyed learning and performing by heart a variety of rap poems with attitude!
The Bayeux Tapestry
We have learnt all about the Bayeux tapestry and have designed our own versions. We are busy sewing them! Look out for our finished work online soon...
Personal Study Time
We are all excited to complete our first personal study in year 5 and have been busy sharing our research with our class mates. We are busy making models, PowerPoint's, leaflets, posters and sewing.
This half term we are all CRAZY SCIENTISTS! We are going to be carrying out lots of investigations.
We had great fun making cornflour slime! It went everywhere! We learnt that cornflour slime is a Non-Newtonian liquid and has very interesting properties.
We have been learning all about different materials and their properties. We carried out lots of tests on our materials to decide which purpose our materials would be suitable for.
Warburton's came to visit and we enjoyed learning all about how to make our own bread.
Egyptian Stone Moving Mechanisms
We worked really hard to create our own stone moving devices. we designed, produced and developed our devices and they worked really well!
Our Solar System
We are learning all about the planets and their sizes and distance from the sun. We have learnt a rhyme to remember them.' My very easy method just speeds up naming...PLANETS!' We calculated the distance of each planet from the sun and used toilet roll to see how far away each planet is. We went outside and used string to show how planets orbit the sun.
Phases of the moon
We enjoyed using Oreo biscuits to find out more about the phases of the moon. We really enjoyed eating them afterwards too!
This week we took part in Bikeability and we all passed! We are now all trained in level two and know how to ride our bikes safely on the road.
